JD unveils new 105-125hp range
Latest 6R series Irish debut at the Grass and Muck show
Visitors to FTMTA Grass and Muck got to see John Deere's new R series in the flesh plus the firm's latest HarvestLab silage analysis technology fitted to its harvester.
Deere added six new models to its 6R series with the introduction of what it calls new 'small-frame' and 'medium-frame' models.
The 6R series now totals nine tractors with horsepower ranging from 105hp to 210hp, or 125hp to 240hp with Intelligent Power Management, for road and pto applications.
The latest additions to the 6R series were seen for the first time in Ireland at the FTMTA Grass and Muck event at Gurteen Agricultural College.
All the models feature the new John Deere tractor family styling with more room, power and comfort.
The new small-frame 6105R, 6115R and 6125R models are equipped with a Stage IIIB 4.5-litre, four-cylinder PowerTech PVX engine, rated from 105hp to 125hp.
The medium-frame 6130R model is powered by a 130hp four-cylinder engine mounted on a six-cylinder frame, while the other two medium-frame models, the 6140R and 6150R, are equipped with a Stage IIIB 6.8-litre six-cylinder PowerTech PVX engine, rated at 140hp and 150hp respectively.
